Kids learn valuable skills and get to fix all the Chromebooks they break.

Hey kids! Want to help out your school and learn a bit about electronics repair at the same time? Google is launching a Chromebook repair program for schools. Chromebooks are wildly popular in schools due to their simple OS and easy management, but the hardware in any education environment really takes a beating. So why not learn to repair them yourself?

Google's new repair site has a guide on setting up Chromebook repair facilities, recommending schools set up a dedicated space for repairs, a front desk for "customers" to drop off broken devices and describe issues, and a skill-tracker board for students.

Judging by how many get broken in schools this is a great idea.

I love this idea. I once worked at a school that had a bunch of donated equipment students used to build equipment. Was a great way for them to learn the different components of a computer and how to put them together.


Such a great way for kids to get real world experience.
